    I think they look pretty nice. I'm going to put on hold my pocket pistol purchase until I see them. I would probably have preferred one with and one without the laser sight because that will jack the price up but if they are similar to the M&P, they'll definitely be worth a look.

    Hey Mr Smith, is Ruger eating your lunch?

    Going to be tough playing catch-up!

    And S&W has a monumental task of improving the DA trigger pull of the Elsie Arrrr!

    Aesthetically, it's Ruger for the WIN X 2. (But then I hate lasers.)

    My daughter thinks the Elsie Pea is cute and needs to come in pink!

    S&W is a day late and a dollar too high. I spent my money on an LCR and a Model 85UL Taurus. Got no more playdoe for .38's. I am eyeballing a Nighthawk though. I don't have a single 1911 in my collection. YET...

    Granted, its been done by Ruger already. But I'm a S&W fan and I'm hoping the semi will be legal in MA.

    Yeah, you would carry a pink gun. Actually, if it was a Ruger, I would too. =P

    I would carry any gun that was gifted. Except a Hi-Point. I almost bought a P22 that had a pink slide. The profits benefitted Susan G. Komen and I am a big supporter of Breast Cancer Awareness. Also, no one is gonna say sh*t when you pull a pink gun. LOL

    Wow, I really like that Bodyguard 38. It's a good looking pistol. I've been wanting a 38 just because - maybe for a little backup gun. I like the smaller grip, that's what drew me to my SR9.

    I just informed hubby that it's on my wish list!

    I checked out both at the S&W booth at the shot show. They both are extremely light and would be very comfortable to carry. The ambidextrous cylinder release on the revolver is high on the tang where the hammer would be located if it had an external hammer. To release the cylinder you push up with your thumb, very easy to do but would take a complete relearning for muscle memory to not be a hazard in an emergency. The 380 is a little small to my hand so did not spend much time looking at it, but it was a well made piece.

    I would like to get one just to test it out but will have to get the ok from upper headquarters. :rolleyes:

    To me, the .380 looks ugly and the .38 special looks like most of S&W's "J" framed revolvers. I never liked the small grip on those revolvers.
    huh? I thought I was a fan of S&W? :confused:
